Do We Need Bird Flu Shots?
The media tells us lately that Europe is using Brid flu shots and so are parts of Asia but not Amercia...
Why not? The birds who spread the virus do so because they are migratory birds who have picked us the virus and passed it along. We do have migratory birds here in large numbers every year so why don't we all need the shot?
I searched Google for the answer.
CBS reports that Timothy Germann of Los Alamos Labs said that the flu strains change all of the time and therefore the shot that is administered must be adjusted to the changes.
The article reported that it would take 10 million doses to adequately cover the spreading of the disease.
So what do you think? Do you think we should administer that many doses?
